Dylan's Living Expenses

Hi, my name is Dylan.  And this is my life since the beginning of 2019. I apologize beforehand since this may or may not come out confusing, but I will try to explain to the best of my ability. So much as happened in such a small time frame, it's hard for me to explain. I am 19 years old and I am currently a super senior in highschool, for those of you who do not know what this means it simply means that I was not able to graduate on time last year and I enrolled once again to receive my diploma and to graduate this year.  In the middle of march my mother kicked me out of the house, claiming she could no longer handle my mental health issues and I had to move out. Fortunately, my friends family was more then willing to take me in. Even though this has happened, I was informed that I would need to leave by the end of September.. but because of school starting, the father of the house decided to let me stay longer, I am still couch surfing and constantly looking for other places to live since I am being told I need to leave by the end of this month. (Update: I was informed just this morning 10/28 that I will need to be out of the house by October 31st, which is the end of the week Friday.) I have been working with a case worker to apply for other living arrangements but with my age, me being transgender, not having my license, and the time of the year, I am currently placed on very long waiting list for multiple shelters. I am trying to stay independent and not ask for money from the people I live with, or from my mother since I do not see us having a relationship anymore. And I would rather our relationship not just be money related. But unfortunately, that's all it has been. What will the funds be used for? The money I receive from my gofundme will go towards my living expenses. The definition of living expenses is: the money that has to be spent on food, housing, clothes, transport etc.  My current living expenses: - Clothing - Phone bill ($50) - Food - Hair care (haircuts, shampoo, conditioner) - School expenses (college field trips, etc) - Medical/Health ($12 monthly, prescriptions, etc.) I currently do not have a job, since I am not able to have one because of my PTSD and other mental illnesses. I am in the need of new clothing that actually fit. I currently have food stamps, which helps me pay for my lunch everyday at school, but my application for cash assistance has not yet gone through, and it may take 2-3 months for it to (that is if they accept me or not.) I may be 19 years old but I have not yet gotten my license, but I am in the process. I have to pay for my phone every month which normally comes out to around $50. School expenses mostly consist of college trips, college applications, buying t-shirts that are required by the school, etc. Most of my prescriptions are covered my my health insurance. But there are certain things I still have to pay out of pocket for, which include my syringes, needles and sharps container for my Testosterone. I also have to pay for one of my prescriptions, which is around $4.  I realize some of there things may seem easy to pay for but for someone who currently does not get paid, whether it be from a job or by the state it's a struggle almost every day. And it also causes me great amounts of stress. Any amount of donations will help me greatly. I have been trying for multiple months to apply for cash assistance and SSI but it's just a frustrating waiting game. Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this. If you are not able to donate, please make sure to share this. It will help me out (:
